Bull James was a guest at SiriusXM’s “Busted Open” on November 11 and spoke about how big men are rare these days and hopes WWE Superstars Omos and Braun Strowman’s feud can help.
During the show, James said that “the work of great men is a lost art these days.” He also revealed how he hopes Braun vs. Omos was an indicator of a resurgence of big men in pro wrestling.
James was with WWE NXT under the ring name Bull Dempsey from 2013 until WWE released him in February 2016. James’ first “NXT” match took place on September 12, 2013 when former WWE Superstar Aiden English defeated him. One of his final matches on WWE TV came on the January 27, 2016 edition of “NXT,” where he lost to ROH World Televised Champion Samoa Joe.
James currently wrestles in several promotions including DDT Pro Wrestling, Independent Superstars of Pro Wrestling and House of Hardcore. In 2019, James also had a match with actor and former WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette. Arquette eventually won the match.
As mentioned, Strowman defeated Omos at Crown Jewel last weekend. After the match, Strowman took to Twitter to brag about their match and gave it “47 stars.” He also stirred the pot with his remarks about high-flyers. He called them “flip flops”. The comments were not taken lightly by other wrestlers, including NJPW’s Will Ospreay and WWE Superstar Mustafa Ali. Strowman returned to WWE on the September 5 episode of “Raw” after having left the company since June 2021.
